The Blue Peter is a 1955 (copyright 1954) British film directed by Wolf Rilla and starring Kieron Moore and Greta Gynt.[1] The film was retitled Navy Heroes and released in the United States in December 1957.[2] The film is about youth seamanship at the original Outward Bound in Aberdyfi, Wales, a program similar to Sea Scouting or Sea Cadets.


Shellshocked following his experiences as a POW, naval war hero Mike Merriworth (Kieron Moore) enrols as a physical instructor at an Outward Bound sea school in Wales, and discovers new purpose shaping the lives of the boys in his charge.



It was one of several scripts Don Sharp wrote for Group Three.[3] He had an idea for a film about the Outward Bound Program and researched it at a camp in Wales. Sharp also worked on the film as a second unit director.[4]

Critical reception

TV Guide wrote, "Several humorous scenes of camping life and a lively group of youngsters brighten an otherwise routine programmer."[5]
